Cambridge, Mass. (May 11) - The MIT squash team saw three student-athletes selected as Scholar-Athletes by the College Squash Association (CSA) this season. This marks the second straight year that senior Wonjune Kang (Seoul, South Korea) has been honored, while juniors Henry Martin (Brooklyn, N.Y.) and Robert Williamson (Weston, Mass.) were named Scholar-Athletes for the first time.
In order to be eligible for the award, squash student-athletes must be a two-time varsity letter winner at the school he is currently attending, have two appearances at the CSA Team National Championships, have a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 (4.0 scale) or higher, be a junior or senior, be enrolled at his current school for one-year prior to the present term and play a top-10 ladder position for the majority of scheduled CSA sanctioned matches during the season.
Kang posted a record of 12-3 overall which featured two wins at position seven, one at position eight and nine in exhibition action, while Martin posted 13 wins and Williamson tallied six victories. In addition, Martin was selected to compete at the CSA Individual National Championship, and he reached the championship round in the consolation final match in the Molloy West Bracket.
All three Engineers guided MIT to a historic season which saw the team qualify for the "B Division" Hoehn Cup at the CSA Team National Championship and went into the tournament ranked No. 16, its highest ranking since that 1999-2000 season. Additionally, MIT knocked off No. 16 Navy for the first time in program history back in November and defeated the Midshipmen a second time later in the season. In total, MIT defeated ten nationally ranked programs in 2019-20.
